Sunshine & Jazz on a Rainy & Summer's Day

The Jazz & Blues Festival has an annual free Jazz on a Summer's Day party in Princes Street Gardens today and for the first time ever we decided to go down. Four hours of a variety of jazz musicians performing, from people charging £15 a ticket to see their shows to the combined Edinburgh School's Band. We went down with a picnic rug and a variety of clothes as one moment it was sweatily hot, the next the fear of rain. This year they gave out free Starbucks coffees from around the world and Muller's new luxury yoghurt, Amore, which was very tasty and very creamy. My advice for next year is to take folding chairs which, as you can see from these pictures, lots of people did this year. A lovely day out provided you remember to put suncream on!
